  • Several times was in Taganrog, but always lacked time to come to this museum. And visit the Museum is really worth: he keeps a history of Taganrog until our days. And if we decided to go to this Museum, be sure to take a tour to learn about the history of the exhibits and the Alferaki Palace, which houses the Museum. I personally learned a lot for themselves: for example, I did not assume that the dukhobors lived in Taganrog, which Tolstoy sent his fee for the novel, "Sunday"; and did not know who Anna Marly. Besides in the Museum are artifacts, which you won't see anywhere else. It is worth to spend a few hours of their time on educational tours. The only downside of this Museum, like most other Russian museums, is only open until 17.00.

  • A good Museum. Is located in a beautiful building. There is a Hall of the Faina Ranevskaya, where there are many photographs, letters written by her hand, personal stuff. Definitely worth a visit!

  • The Museum, of course, interesting! Not the Hermitage but for provincial town quite worthy! There is something to see. But, in my opinion, the greatest impression leaves the building of the Museum. The former Palace of the Taganrog merchant of Greek origin Alferaki. Built in the middle of 19 century. Amazing beauty and ease of building! Rarely do such a sight and safety can be found in other cities! Palace of pleasing both inside and outside! Adjacent to it is perfectly planned Mini Park with sculptures. See the Palace and its Museum! Browse the exhibits and imagine how rich people lived at that time! Complex, possibly preserved in excellent condition because it was created by the Museum. By the way, on the initiative of the great countryman Anton Chekhov ... Highly recommend a visit!
